Hello world! How are you? Are you happy September is ended? I love September, it’s one of my favorite months, but I like October too, and this month seemed neverending to me, so yeah, I’m happy to see it end!
For this month I had a specific goal: reading books that belong to the series that I have started in the past. And I reached my goal! I can’t believe it, but I did it! (To be completely honest I have read a book that wasn’t part of a series, but I have started it in August and I finished it on the first day of September, so it doesn’t count, and I have started a new series, but I planned it and it’s the first of a companion series, and the right order wants that you read that first book before the last of the main series, so this one doesn’t count, either!). Anyway, I am not completely satisfied with myself, because I was hoping to read a lot more and I was hoping to finish some more series. But this was really a busy month, and I did a lot of good reading anyway, so I can’t really complain!
August Reading Stats:
Books read: 14
The Hero Strikes Back was amazing! I waited for ages before starting this second book, but it was even better than the first… maybe! Anyway, I loved it and I hope to write a review or something about it because this one is a great series! And then there are two Ilona Andrews’ books. To be completely honest they aren’t 5 solid stars books, but I have enjoyed them so much that, for me, they are awesome!
They were so so good!
White Trash Zombie Apocalypse is the third in the series and I really like this series! It’s fun and highly enjoyable, even if I preferred the second book to this one. And The Prophecy Con was as good as I was expecting. I love this series, the author takes all the things fantasy and makes satire out of them. It’s pure genius!
They were good!
Ok, here we have quite a bunch of titles! So… Against the Grain is the fifth volumes in The T.H.I.R.D.S. series, and I was expecting something more from it. Mind me, it’s a sweet, fun and fast reading, but the previous volume was way better! Then we have the last installment in the Rebel series, and it was good, but I was expecting something more from it. I wanted to fall in love with it and it didn’t happen. Dare you to wasn’t a bad reading but wasn’t so good either. I thought about putting it in the “just ok” book, but in the end, I enjoyed the reading and so here it is. Glory in Death was surprising. Mind me, I liked the first, but I was convinced that with the second the things would have been different (don’t ask me why!). So I have started this one with the idea of disliking it. And I waited to read this one to decide to go on with the series or to stop it. And you know what? I enjoyed the reading! It’s not a masterpiece, but it’s just the right book at the right time. And so I have decided to go on with the series. And after that, I discovered that the series has 48 books and it’s not finished yet. And yep… you did read right. 48 books. Why?????? Then we have the last two: The Jane Yellowrock World Companion that was interesting and The End of Days. I liked this one, but I have to think about it because there are some things that I have to decide before saying them out loud!
And then I have read The Intern’s Handbook, that was the only book not on a series. It was a good reading, original and fast-paced. And Mucho Mojo by Joe R. Lansdale. I am liking this series, but I am not in love with it.
This was the only ARC of the month and the second of a series. This second book confirmed my opinion on the first one, they are fast reading and they’re not bad, but it’s nothing memorable, sadly. Anyway, I hope to write soon a review.
In September I wasn’t active on the blog so much, but I have managed to post some reviews, yay! I hope to do better in October, obviously, but it’s something,
